School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and senior leaders, most having started their roles in September 2016, have implemented robust policies and procedures that have enabled you to examine different aspects of the school. Your leadership team is thorough in the analysis of the school’s strengths and areas for development. As a result, your self-evaluation is accurate and your plans for school improvement are clear. This has ensured a rapid improvement in pupils’ achievement this school year. You have created a staff team that is determined to do the best for all the pupils in the school. There were eight new teachers at the start of the academic year. You have invested in effective induction and training. Consequently, you have set high aspirations, improved the systems for monitoring the progress of pupils and have ensured good support for those pupils at risk of falling behind. You have a close working partnership with the governing body. Governors hold you to account well and regularly visit the school to check in detail how it is doing. Pupils behave well in class, as they move around the school and in the playground. They have positive attitudes to lessons and enjoy school. One parent said: ‘Our daughter has flourished. She quite literally skips into school and loves learning.’ Pupils thrive in the ‘Tree House’. This additional provision is expertly led, ensuring that pupils who find learning in large groups difficult receive very effective, individual guidance. These pupils develop academically and personally as a result of.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Review of Hillcroft”
AUTHOR:
"> Child is happy at this school, however since it became an academy the leadership and management of the school has deteriorated. The school doesn't consult with parents about changes. The teachers, however, do a fantastic job.
